Trophy TR6C (Unit/Pre-OIF)
(1963 - 1970)
The US market was Triumph's biggest money earner in 1963 so there were two different 650cc single carburettor models developed to satisfy the demand, both initially named Trophy.
The TR6C was the Competition off-road model and was also known as the TR6S/C (Trophy Competition). It retained its name when the road version was renamed Tiger.
The 1963 model typically had low-level exhausts (except for those imported by JoMo) but by 1964 these had all been changed to use the more appropriate high-level exhausts. In 1967 the twin exhausts were altered to run along one side of the machine, and these were adorned with the 'chip basket' heat guard from 1969.
The model was superceded in 1971 by the Oil in Frame model.
